Speaking of Texas

Newsweek has another article on the state of our country’s greatest state (we’re from there, we miss it, we’re a little biased). Here are some of the factoids to take away:

  • State’s unemployment rate is 8.4% (CA is at 12.5, Michigan 14.1).
  • The mortgage delinquency rate (the portion of borrowers three months behind on payments) is 5.78 percent, compared with 8.78 nationwide.
  • The nation’s largest exporting state.
  • Texas’ investment in Wind Power energy has created 10,000 new jobs.
